I want to give a shout out to the Henderson County Chamber of Commerce and their leadership for hosting a virtual “Candidate Forum” this week. It was the beginning of a good dialogue among candidates and a chance for members and participants to ask questions of us. Great idea and very well executed.
Some of the topics discussed were affordable/workforce housing, managed growth, keeping downtown vibrant and expanding revitalization projects such as that taking place in the 7th Avenue Historic District, infrastructure (water, sewer, roads, fiber internet), inviting more businesses to locate in and around Hendersonville, launching new businesses in high tech and clean manufacturing, protecting our quality of life, and much more.
Truly this is a meaningful election and I want to encourage all eligible voters to make sure they get out for the October 5th Primary.
